Exploring the National Portrait Gallery

Posted on Updated on

Pity the poor gift recipient.  We all know that deciding what to buy your loved one can be tough, but do you really want to give a farm’s worth of livestock and a party load of people?

That’s just what the present giver did in The 12 Days of Christmas. 

This traditional English Christmas carol, first published in England in 1780, tells the story of a series of gifts from “my true love”. There have been a number of different versions of the lyrics over the centuries but all feature an ever growing list of animals birds and people.

The 12 Days of Christmas Treasure Hunt

Instead of giving gifts, a group of treasure hunters searched for answers to clues about them. Exploring the National Portrait Gallery, their quest took them from Tudor paintings to 21st century art.

Now it’s your turn

Team Tickets are still available for Friday 1 Dec 2017 and Thursday 14 Dec 2017

Trick or Treat at The British Museum

Posted on Updated on

Treasure Hunts In London will be running their annual Trick or Treat Halloween Treasure Hunts around the British Museum again this year.

Begin by meeting the Witches and reading the Halloween story……………

Trickier than it seems as some of the words are missing. Can you fill in the blanks?

Solve the clues and you will discover they all relate to objects that can be found within the British Museum.  

Now it’s time to set off exploring. Will you be able to find the objects? They can all be discovered within the collections treasures.

Think you’ve found the right cauldron? You’ll have to unravel the crypt-ic clues and answer the question about it to check. Tricky? A little, but all the solutions can be found by searching the cabinets and reading the descriptions.

The British museum is vast, but the witches will give you a list of rooms to search so you can find your way around. And if you need a little more help, they will be there to assist you, offering hints and advice.

After you’ve finished exploring the museum and solving the tricks, it’s time for the treats. Head to an elegant nearby venue for a delicious cream tea treat and prize giving.

Million Pound Heist

Posted on Updated on

There had been persistent rumours of a notorious criminal gang in London stockpiling money. Invitation To Events dispatched their top team to break into the gang’s safehouse and relieve them of some of their cash.

The quest began at the Enigma Quests building, near Liverpool Street. After a complimentary hot drink the team left the cozy sofas and soft bean bags to venture into London’s underworld.

Once locked inside the criminal gang’s safehouse, they knew they would have 60 minutes to escape with as much money as possible.

Dealing with highly confidential information the group navigated their way through top level security to find their way to the hidden vault.

Teamwork was essential.

Overcoming various challenges they made it through and were able to find the safety deposit boxes. However, the vault contained too much money to fit into their small case!

Decisions had to be made and some money had to be left behind. Escaping in time, they knew that only the teams escaping the highest sums would make it onto the Enigma Quests leaderboard.
